GTA 6 release date leaked and may be out in time for PS5 and Xbox Series X


THE release date for the latest Grand Theft Auto game may have been leaked by an online games shop.

Gameware, an Austrian retailer, this week posted a listing for the hotly-anticipated “GTA 6” suggesting the big-budget title will be out this year.

The shop has accurately leaked the launch dates of several major games in the past.

These included the release of the latest Need for Speed, “Need for Speed: Heat”, last November, as well as Capcom’s Devil May Cry V.

Gameware has placed an obscure “2020” release date on its GTA 6 listing, without giving a specific date to circle in your calendar.

The game will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC, according to the retailer.


Games maker Rockstar hasn’t made a peep about GTA 6, but it’s safe to assume the game is in the works

Grand Theft Auto 6 is the rumoured followup to GTA V, which has sold more than 90million copies and made an estimated 5billion since its 2013 release.

Creator Rockstar Games has yet to acknowledge it’s making another GTA game, but it’s safe to assume one is in the works.

Previous leaks and rumours have suggested the game will launch with the new generation of Xbox and PlayStation consoles later this year.

The PS5 and Xbox Series X are both out in the run up to Christmas 2020. We’re awaiting specific release dates from Sony and Microsoft.

Gameware’s “leak” may line up with earlier whispers about a release date, but as with any rumour, we’d take it with a heap of salt for now.

The site has not made it clear what it based the prediction on, and the date may just be a placeholder until more information is available.

It seems unlikely that we’ll see GTA 6 released this year, as Rockstar has yet to announce it’s existence yet.

A more feasible timescale is that we’ll get an announcement this year followed by a release in late 2021.

The latest GTA 6 rumour is one of many to emerge about Rockstar’s new game.

Players will apparently take the role of a drug lord in the series’ latest instalment, which takes place in three locations from previous games.

It’s also been claimed that gamers will take the role of two characters, one female and one male.

All speculation for now, of course here’s hoping Rockstar gives us something concrete over the next few months.

In other news, GTA 6 could launch alongside the PS5 when the console hits shelves this year, according to a mystery Rockstar Games insider.

A Grand Theft Auto cheater was recently ordered to pay 115,000 after being sued by the game’s designers.
